Let down

If you let someone down, you disappoint them or you don’t live up to/ meet their expectations. This is a more diplomatic way of expressing disappointment. The noun is a “letdown” (disappointment).

1.  Here are some lyrics to the Beatles’ song, “Don’t let me down”:
Don't let me down, Don't let me down, Don't let me down, Don't let me down...Nobody ever loved me like she does (Ooh she does… yes she does). And if somebody loved me like she does (Ooh she does… yes she does): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUNxWax8WGs

2. Do you follow all the rules and show up to work on time every day because you don’t want to let your boss down, or is it because you don’t want to get fired?

3. Do you feel that your president, governor, mayor… or any other politician has let you down? The reason we feel let down is that they usually make promises they don’t keep.

4. I always have high expectations every time I order a Big Mac… and inevitably it’s always a letdown. Why do we keep going back for more of the same when we know we will be let down in the end? Human nature?


  1. Hey Frank, how are you doing, dude?

    Regarding the last question, I think the answer is Hope. =]

  2. Yep... you hit the nail on the head, Marcos!
    Nice to see you around!

  3. I've been letdown by some people during my journey but ey! few dirty drops of the ocean don't stain the whole ocean.

  4. when you Frank stopped posting as often as you used to back in 2013, It was such a big let down, thank goodness you're back on track. I'm stepping up my game by learning new stuff through this badass blog.
